maybe those are different, I have offset ones and that's what I'm talking about. I didn't make this up, I just listen to a guy who was a metal expert and I tried it and it made sense.
So to clarify, if you have offset snips(the ones with the more roundish tips) try what I said. I didn't make it up.
Come back and tell us the results. Please do so. I encourage anyone to try it. I actually went out there to make sure cause you guys made me second guess myself and sure enough, results were best with what I said. Maybe there's a better cutting tool to be used but for the offset snips what I said is just information somebody passed onto me that works best in my OPINION.
Dear OG poster, go try and come back and tell us the results. Be thankful I had corrected someone earlier who might have came back here to tell you to go shrink around a weld. I'm no internet expert, I got chit to do.
